Album Update: P.O.S., We Don’t Even Live Here

Posted in Album Update, Media, Video with tags , , , , , , , , on Thursday, August 16, 2012 by Tim Althaus

Good music keeps oozing from the pores of the Hip-Hop Heavyweights over at Rhymesayers Entertainment. Aesop Rock just released another stellar album last month; Brother Ali is releasing his new album in September, and now it has been announced that P.O.S. will release his fourth studio album - We Don’t Even Live Here - on October 23rd.

According to the press release I read, We Don’t Even Live Here will favor more futuristic beats influenced by the Euro club scene. Even though P.O.S. is going to keep his Hip-Hop roots grounded by collaborating with regular names like Cecil Otter, Lazerbeak, Mike Mictlan and Sims, We Don’t Even Live Here will feature beats from artists like Boyz Noise & Housemeister – DJs who make dance-oriented music. Fans can also expect to hear Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) lending his vocals to the album.

This will be Stef’s first album since he released the masterpiece Never Better back in 2009; three years is a long wait, so I’m definitely stoked to hear some new solo material is coming out. I’ve been a huge fan of everything he’s done so far, and I think that his strategy to shake things up could pay off big dividends.

Recently, Stef performed a live version of the lead single from We Don’t Even Live Here - “Bumper” – for Pitchfork City of Music, and if it’s any indication of what the album’s going to sound like, then listeners are in for a very interesting and intense ride. I know I can’t wait to buy my ticket.

Here’s a look at the upcoming video for “Prizefight” off of the Hand Over Fist album from Mike Mictlan and Lazerbeak. Rumor has it there will be a free downloadable remix album that will coincide with the video’s full release in September.

P.O.S. performs “Savion Glover” for Yours Truly

I posted the first part of this video series earlier when Stef had performed the track “Goodbye” off of his new album Never Better. This second part here, has him performing the track “Savion Glover” with Plain Ole Bill and Mike Mictlan. Yet another great video from P.O.S. as he talks briefly in the beginning about the situation that he had when he was growing up as a kid. He tranisitions into the track real smooth with Mictlan as his hype man for the track.

Editor’s Note: Does anyone know where the hell I can get that hat that Mictlan is wearing?
